How did you choose your multiples' names?
Honestly this was not as hard as it should have been. I made a list of names I really loved and liked and my husband put his input into the list and then I picked one and he picked one. Though we both had to agree on the names, it turned out to be quite easy!
Did you stick with family names?
We actually did not stick to family names for their first names, but middle names were family names, but names we both still liked.
How do you feel about "match" names?
Without trying to insult anyone who did this, it was not for us. I think a big part of it for us was that we were having identical girls, we figured they would look identical, they did not need to have similar names.
Personally I think it is cute when they are little, and not so much when they get older!
Did you worry about their names "coordinating"?
We wanted the names to sound nice together, but coordinate as in old and new or anything like that, no!
Did you name your babies before you met them, or wait until you saw them?
We named the babies before we met them. With a step-daughter we wanted her to have positive association with the babies and we thought that naming them before would help. Plus they were such high risk being MoMo babies that if case something happened to one of them or both, we already knew which one was which.
What were your second choices?
If we were having boys (though we found out fast they were not) they were going to be Miles and Oliver and the second choice for girls was Maggie and I was hoping my husband would agree on Josephine but I don't think he would have went for it.
Did you consider the popularity of a name as a deciding factor?
In a way we did, but not really. Neither name is all that popular though they are growing in popularity.
